The Pearl Princess

March 30, 2017


She died in her twenties. Her body was wrapped in three elaborate belt garments comprised of 1,996 pierced shells - a mixture of local clams and shells from the gulf of Mexico. She may have been a princess. Some have theorized that she was a shaman. Her body was unearthed in the reduced remnant of a conical mound at Aztalan - the northern outpost of the Mississippian civilization located on the banks of the Crawfish River near Lake Mills.
